Nightly trunk builds represent the cutting edge in Oolite development.
There are no guarantees about their functionality and they are produced for testing purposes only.
People wishing to just play the game are advised to download the current official releases

How do I install it?
To install the package
$ tar xzvf <filename>.tgz
$ [sudo] ./<filename>.run # use sudo if you want a system-wide installation
This will auto-uninstall the previous version of Oolite nightly (i.e. Oolite-trunk) and install the new one.
Oolite nightly will be installed either under /opt/Oolite-trunk (system-wide installation) or under $HOME/GNUstep/Applications/Oolite-trunk (home-directory installation).
A desktop menu "Games/Oolite-trunk (oolite.org)" will be also available to any distro which uses the freedesktop.org
standard for its menus.
To save considerable download time, you can update your current oolite nightly trunk installation
to the latest nightly trunk build by executing
$ sudo oolite-trunk-updateHome-directory installations
$ cd ~/GNUstep/Applications/Oolite-trunk
: You should have installed a nightly trunk build revision >= r4509 in order to use the "oolite-trunk-update" utility.
How do I uninstall it?

$ sudo /opt/Oolite-trunk/uninstallHome-directory installations
